Buyer's guide: 10 top functional testing tools

Functional testing is critical to successful application development, and the trick for businesses is figuring out how to speed up their testing processes and increase accuracy and completeness— without breaking already tight budgets.

But, as the market becomes increasingly saturated with different vendors all claiming their solution is the best, how can you be sure which one is right for your business?

IT Central Station has put together a new, independent report based on real users’ feedback. The 39-page document includes an overview of the 10 best vendors alongside a summary of the top functional testing tools offered by these companies.


Rating the top functional testing tools

IT Central Station outlined an initial 33 solution providers in their vendor directory but selected 10 enterprise level functional testing tools to include in this buyer’s guide. Those solutions are UFT (QTP), Tricentis Tosca, Sauce Labs, SmartBear TestComplete, Selenium HQ, Worksoft Certify, UFT Pro (LeanFT), Parasoft SOAtest, CrossBrowserTesting, and Ranorex.  

The criteria used to evaluate the solutions consists of product reviews, ratings and comparisons to other solution providers. Each offering included in the report is accompanied by a sample of its customers, its top comparisons and some also have a breakdown of the industries and company size the majority of their reviewers originate from listed.

All the reviews included in the report have been posted in the 24 months prior to publication and are from real, authenticated users. These reviews are comprised from a selection of four key topic areas to ensure readers get an unbiased overview of each offering. These topic areas consist of the most valuable features of the solution, the improvements it made to the users’ organization, how the solution could be improved upon to and where relevant, its pricing, set up cost and licensing fee.


Based on tens of thousands of comparisons and dozens of bespoke reviews this short report offers unbiased feedback on the most widely used functional testing tools in the marketplace today.
